Lotmead Pick Your Own

Lotmead PYO is a family friendly activity farm just outside Swindon well known for its fabulous ‘pick your own’ strawberries and exciting play area.

It's the perfect place for a relaxing day out and is open from Monday to Sunday from 9.30am until 5pm from 25th May until October – however sometimes hours do need to change temporarily, check their Facebook or Instagram pages or call their farm hotline on 01793 790137 to double check before you set off.

They may have a few strawberries in May, but it will be limited and they are likely to have the fields closed more than they are open until they move into June.


From October, families can pick their own pumpkins in a dedicated area of the farm. Pumpkins, squashes, gourds, carving kits and accessories will be available. There is no booking, just turn up. It is free to enter the PYO area, just pay for what you pick.

Lots To Do

With acres of space for kids to run around in, there’s lots to see and do. There’s a nature trail that leads to a small lake and bird sanctuary, a small animal enclosure perfect for younger children and a Strawberry Thief themed play area with climbing frames, swings and slides.

Please note: a small fee is charged for combined entrance to the play area, nature trail and small animal enclosure. Lotmead’s annual passes are the most cost-effective way to visit, giving families unlimited visits across the summer. Visit the Lotmead PYO website for details.
